Fourth Preparatory Committee Meeting for the Silk Roads Living Heritage Network Held
On 25 August 2021, UNESCO-ICHCAP and its collaborative partners IICAS and the KF Korea-Central Asia Cooperation Forum Secretariat held the fourth preparatory committee meeting for the Silk Roads Living Heritage Network online.
The committee discussed the preliminary details of the inauguration events and examined operational issues of the network. During the discussion on the agenda items, it has been outlined that the establishment of the network coincides with UNESCO International Decade for Rapprochement of Cultures (2013-2022). The Committee agreed to develop its distinctive strategy to promote and operate the network concerning UNESCO’s programs.
The committee also discussed defining its expected scope of the membership and extending partnership in more substantial and attractive aspects. Thus, the committee expects to discuss more details and the progress on the agenda items at the fifth preparatory committee meeting, scheduled to be held on 15 September 2021.
Further updates and information will be ready soon on the Silk Roads Network menu on the UNESCO-ICHCAP website (www.unesco-ichcap.org).
